Australian deputy prime minister (Scott Morrison is away on holiday again), has expressed the same views. Stubbornly deflecting the howls of criticism from everyone except the Liberal party. Scoundrels all.

... meanwhile, Australians overseas trying to get home are stranded and bumped off flights. Great priorities Morrison.

Man up. Times are hard, but no point being anxious or blathering about the pain you’re feeling. Be strong for the people around you. This article is full of ditherers and moaners, they don’t help anyone,
Agree 100%. Cancel the damn olympics. Do what has worked in other countries (no, I don’t need to reminded that ‘we are Japanese’ and not like other countries). Stop moaning and worrying about money and the bubble you live in.

Just like their beloved leader, these people are anti-democracy traitors with absolutely zero respect for the seat of democracy, let alone the process.
What a total embarrassment Amerika has become.

Don’t rush these important decisions. Take your time. Set up another panel to discuss the main points on how to address the situation. No rush.
Meanwhile, cases in my town are exponentially rising. ʅ（◞‿◟）ʃ

Yuck. This creepy little lizard man, as @Puckey2 said, his wife was insulted and his father was accused of JFK assassination all by Dump, shows once again that he has absolutely no spine, not a shred of integrity. Classic Republican toad.

As long as so many governments are literally owned by fossil fuel industries around the world, they will always make these kind of decisions, always choose the bad (for the planet and future generations) option, always look at the short term (the next election, donations, etc). Sadly, Japan is no different.

why the hell do you need to know exactly what kind of tool he murdered his sister with??? What possible use would that information be to you?

Look out yanks, that’s socialism right there that they’re arguing about. Which socialism is better, the $600 socialism, or the $1200 socialism?

Being a nation that encourages, nay, expects conformity, will inevitably lead to copycat cases of suicide given the constant reporting of cases in the media. Stop this practice and cases will drop. It’s not brain science.

I’ve been asking for the last couple of months: ‘where’s Suga?!’ He’s literally been absent from his unfortunate role of leader thru this terrible situation. Any thoughts that his non-elite background would make him more in tune with the general population are dashed completely. Blaming the people indeed! What a hide this dinosaur has!

It’s a deeply patriarchal society, and it will take a lot more than govt setting goals to change that.

Posted in: If you are a foreign resident (either permanent, long term or short term) of Japan, do you currently feel safer living here amid the coronavirus, or would you prefer to be in some other country? See in context
I’d rather be in a country where the leadership is visible, proactive and onto the situation. Rather than the tepid requests coming for the ‘leadership’ here. The cases in my town are increasing daily due to a number of factors including complacency among the general populace and lack of strong leadership.

Abe, Modi and Morrison. Two right wing hawks and one accidental flake PM. Good example of ‘birds of a feather flock together’.

And Japan should compensate the country for the massive expense in containing and cleaning up the mess and loss of tourism revenue.

It’s only a giant tanker with horrendous environmental disaster implications if something goes wrong. Lack of supervision and safety monitoring?! Pfft. Captain should be dragged off the ship in cuffs and dealt with in Mauritius.

A 9/11 body count daily is predicted for the next 90 days. Trump has hundreds of thousands of deaths on his hands.

Two things: Firstly, there is no leadership at this time of crisis. Where was Abe, where is Suga with daily, or at least weekly reassurances, encouragements or just plain laying down the law?! Secondly, people here live in a bubble. ‘We are clean people’, even ‘we are Japan, it won’t happen to us’ have both been said to me! They won’t wake up so alas, I’m afraid the country is doomed

Because he’s nowhere to be seen! Not reassuring the public that the govt are doing stuff about the pandemic. Not on the TV every few days explaining policies. He’s absent.

Talk about living in a bubble. They’re concerned about the request for elderly to refrain, not at all concerned about the fact that there is a pandemic raging practically unregulated in their cities.
